Uninstall old hardware

Start Menu > My Computer > Right Click > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Environmental Variables > System Variables > New > name: “devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices” value: “1”

Start Menu > My Computer > Right Click > Manage > Device Manager > Right Pane: More Actions > View > Show Hidden Devices [check]

Hardware that is no longer present will be “ghosted out”.

As you can see, my old video card driver is still installed and using system resources.
